Over one million people in the UK have a significant disfigurement (visible difference) to the face or body. 

Those affected often experience psychological difficulties associated with anxiety, poor body image, anger and low self-esteem, as well as social difficulties such as staring, name-calling, comments, rejection and unsolicited questions about their appearance.

This two-day course introduces psychologists and health professionals to the fundamental principles of working with people with appearance-related distress, and will provide you with the knowledge to enable you to better support individuals and signpost to appropriate support services.

The course will be held on 25 and 26 June and will run from 09:00-17:00 on both days.
